Three of the area honored as scholars of world languages

The Nebraska Department of Education is recognizing 49 Distinguished World Language Scholars during World Language Week 2023.

The World Language Distinguished Scholar Award recognizes Nebraska students for their leadership in language learning, commitment to language study, appreciation for cultural diversity, and communicative competence. The students were nominated by their teachers and presented a portfolio.

Qualifying students from northeast and north central Nebraska were: West Point-Beemer High School – Josephine Moyer, Spanish; Wisner-Pilger High School – Laura Kinnison, Spanish; McKenna Slonecker, Spanish.

“To learn a world language is to strengthen one’s understanding of humans across all backgrounds, ethnicities, and time periods,” said Nathan Walther, a Bellevue West High senior and World Language Distinguished Scholar. “Learning a world language is an essential skill that is needed in the diverse world we live in today, because it creates much-needed connections between people amid many divisions.”
